Michael B. Jordan Given A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Michael B. Jordan has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

Two days before the premiere of his newest movie, Creed III, the actor received the star and was grinning from ear to ear.

 

The American actor, 36, has starred as Adonis Creed in all three of the Creed boxing films, serving as the director in the last film.

Jordan began his career as a child model for companies like Toys “R” Us.

 

He debuted as an actor in 1999, appearing in episodes of Cosby and The Sopranos, then then moving on to make appearances in Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and the Black Panther movies.

 

“My emotions are actually all over the place, I’m seeing so many people that I want to kind of get to and hug and connect with and show my appreciation.”

 

His close associates, filmmaker Ryan Coogler and actor Jonathan Majors, joined him and each offered a tribute speech to the actor.

Jordan recently discussed his work ethic and how keeping his mind on his career helped him get over last year’s breakup with Lori Harvey.
